Add vinaigrette ingredients to small bowl, whisk to combine. Set aside. Rub grill grates with canola oil to avoid sticking. Cut watermelon into 1” thick sections – remove rind. Brush sections with a coating of honey. Cook watermelon on grill for 15-20 seconds, on one side only. Remove from grill, cut into cubes, or serve whole. Mix together kale and romaine in a large bowl. Toss with citrus dressing. Place salad mixture onto plate. Sprinkle 3-4 Tablespoons of quinoa and 2 Tablespoons goat cheese on top. Add grilled watermelon. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.
